June 12, 2012, ERIE, PA — Sometimes, the Pennsylvania injury lawyer in me just can’t help seeing a change of seasons as a time to worry about new hazards. Our household saw its last day of school last Friday and the invitations to visit our friends and neighbors for pool parties have begun already. We’re grateful for such friends (I carefully select my friends using important criteria like pool ownership, boat ownership and hunting camp ownership) but it reminds me that Pennsylvania people are going to be spending a lot of time in and around swimming pools. As an Erie injury attorney who has represented people in far too many tragic pool accidents, I feel obliged to post reminders about swimming pool safety.
We’ve posted a lot of information about swimming pool safety on our website in the past. Here’s a quick index with hyperlinks to articles for pool owners and users alike. Just click on the link to be taken to the article.
